LOCKPORT – A Level 1 sex offender who failed to inform police when he moved within Niagara Falls last year was granted a conditional discharge Thursday by Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III.

Christopher Montgomery, 29, moved from South Avenue to Willow Avenue without reporting. He had pleaded guilty to a felony count of failing to register and could have been imprisoned for as long as four years.

Murphy also granted a conditional discharge and imposed $605 in fines and fees on Connie S. Lekki, 51, of 19th Avenue, North Tonawanda.

She had been accused of felony driving while intoxicated after a May 3 North Tonawanda arrest, but in a nonjury trial Oct. 9, Murphy found her guilty only of impaired driving as a traffic infraction, along with two other moving violations.
